Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, Brand New Life, Justin Johnson 

When: Sat., March 10, 10 p.m. 2012
Price: $8

With all the party-starting energy of a New Orleans brass band but a more expansive worldview, The Brand New Life takes Afrobeat and funk on a psychedelic trip through free-jazz territory. The infectious eight-piece boats an array of woodwinds, brass, polyrhythmic percussion and traditional rock instrumentation. With it, they offer grooves that'll get feet moving. Asheville's Jonathan Scales Fourchestra presents an effective cool-down in the headlining slot; steel drum whiz Scales infuses his jazzy compositions with island vibes and a wealth of genre-spanning influences both classic and contemporary. Justin Johnson opens.—Spencer Griffith
